Re: Large event questions.

It depends on how much competition you have and how good your marketing is. If there is competition but you sell a superior product and with good sales, you should get at least 5 % of the foot traffic. If you are the only guy on site that sells shave ice, you can estimate 10 percent of the daily tra...

Brand new item! We are now carrying chocolate condensed milk for all you chocolate lovers. Field tested this weekend, we gave samples of it to clients on top of their shave ice and they loved it!

Re: Kona Ice

We had a client do a event this past weekend and competed against a local Kona Ice vendor within a 200 foot distance. This is a 20,000 person event. The shave ice vendor beat the Kona Ice truck hands down when customers started comparing the two. From what our client said, Kona has much better expos...

Re: NEW KID on the block question, useful Vendor info

Katy, when we talking in the industry about "stealing" business is don't step on toes of other people in your area. If you are doing private events (which seems the case), then don't poach another shave ice caterers clients if they are already servicing them. Don't set up shop across the street from...

Re: NEW KID on the block question, useful Vendor info

katyocru, Thanks for the helpful tips for the ice! I will definitely try it. I don't think there's rule against making my own. thanks for the heads up! I get the feeling there's some animosity from you guys towards Icy Skyy. It's kind of strange that this forum is targeting them. Being a startup bus...

Re: Newbe Question

Private events are fine without NSF approval since you do not need a health permit nor GE tax to do private (not for profit) functions. Some cities allow you to use the Fujimarca without NSF as well in California.

Re: NEW KID on the block question, useful Vendor info

Katy, check with your local health dept if they let you make your own blocks. Many do not and require you to buy from a ice company. I would normally recommend half gallon containers. Don't use glass! Plastic or metal is ideal. Don't open or close your freezer during freezing to prevent cracks and n...
